Pre-service, in-service, and faculty of K-12 and university classrooms alike regularly engage in meaningful experiences utilizing innovative technologies to support and enhance learning. Often though, educators are challenged with balancing current practices with the next specific solution in educational technology. As faculty and staff of teacher educator programs are often both leading and modeling the change process, there is a current focus on engaging educators in a change process that supports collaborative inquiry for innovation and change. The presentation will be grounded in research related to change process, adult learners, and best practices for professional development. We will model inquiry to help participants diagnose an issue, frame an effective central question, and plan for engaging colleagues in innovative ways that support students.
